Dream Home

Earlier this month I bought Dream Home at a Dutch fair called Spellenspektakel. Droomhuis, as it is called in Dutch, was the first game from Chronicle Games, a new Dutch publisher. It has been published earlier in the year by REBEL.pl as Domek. I played it quite a few times since I bought it. Is it any good?

My favourite boardgames for two

Many people think of board games as things you do on special occasions.  Like, Christmas, family gatherings and on evenings with friends. A lot of times people then play the usual suspects. Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly or a more recent game, Settlers of Catan (or Catan, as the game must be called at the moment). Often I hear people say, when I tell them that I play games multiple times a week, ‘but board games […]

Hanabi won, but there is more to Qwixx than meets the eye. Overview: What do you get for your […]

Be the first to get three points and you are the winner! Overview: What do you get for your money? You get 45 playing cards, plus the instructions. How […]

ZhanGuo Review

In the third century B.C., Qin conquered the so-called Warring States, Zhan Guo. Immediately after that, Ying Zheng, the king of Qin declared himself the First Emperor of Qin. The just annexed states still think they should be independent nations and in ZhanGuo, a game from Marco Canetta and Stefania Niccolini, it’s your task to contribute to the process of unifying the empire, by appointing governors, introducing law, currency and writing in the Warring […]
